NetSuite shares pretty much went in one direction in 2012: up. The company's stock was higher at the end of each of the four quarters and finished with an impressive 66-percent uptick for investors.

In early October, NetSuite debuted Two-Tier ERP for Oracle, a package of cloud software that works with Oracle's E-Business Suite applications, and unveiled agreements with IBM and Dell for linking applications.
